LESS IS MORE: A NORWEGIAN STYLE AE86

LESS IS MORE: A NORWEGIAN STYLE AE86

After seeing all of the mad vehicles we’ve featured this month, it’d be logical to think that every car built in the Scandinavian region is some sort of zombie-like, engine-swapped tire-destroying machine. While those bonkers cars might define the scene for many, Scandanavian car enthusiasts also have plenty of appreciation for simple, more detail-focused builds – like [...]

Total Overhaul: 1977 Audi 50 GLS

This 1977 Audi 50 GLS is the product of a serious overhaul performed on the yellow car that we featured here on BaT back in 2011. When the seller says it is the only one in the USA, we immediately thought of the yellow one… turns out it is the same car that he has built into [...]

First Test: 2013 Toyota Avalon TRD Edition

First Test: 2013 Toyota Avalon TRD Edition

Three modified Toyota Avalon sedans were some of the biggest surprises at last year’s SEMA show. The cars were obviously not targeted toward grandma, unless she likes the idea of a supercharger, 19-inch rims, and a lowered suspension — just a few items on the Avalon TRD Edition show car. We treated this Avalon like [...]

2013 Toyota Prius V Tested: Yep, it’s the Big Prius

2013 Toyota Prius V Tested: Yep, it’s the Big Prius

For many buyers, the Toyota Prius is to hybrid vehicles what Xerox is to photocopies: a synonym and an archetype. All hybrids are Priuses, to many who don’t read car magazines, and that’s what Toyota gets for being first with a good product. A couple of years ago, Toyota’s popular hybrid had kittens and expanded into three [...]

Quick Spin: 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel

Quick Spin: 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel

Volkswagen has gotten pretty comfortable hogging the (admittedly small) non-premium diesel car market in the US. With Golf and Jetta, the German automaker has been the one and only choice for those interested in the torquey, high-mpg merits of turbocharged diesel power.

First Drive: 2013 Audi S3

The Audi S3 is not exactly a sales juggernaut, despite it being a bit of a legend for passionate fans of the small German premium genre. In most markets outside of Europe, people may consider such setups as the S3 three-door tested here, look at the price, and then think maybe they should just get a nice A4 sedan [...]
